    Hi all,

    Found something rather unusual at my local TK Maxx the other day (folks stateside may know this chain as TJ Maxx?). They had some Legends TFs in Classics packaging, 2 each of Leo Prime... and Cybertron Prime, Soundwave and Hot Shot! These were new to me so I grabbed them.

    Here's some pics of Prime in-package:

    They all have a 2007 copyright date which is odd. I'm assuming these are re-packages (apart from Leo Prime).

    I know Fosterlager found these in a grocery store about a month ago, has anyone else ever sighted these?

    I think they're for discount stores, like big lots. That's the only place I've seen them.

    His leg is completely unpainted?

    ...the hell?!

    You're right! I only just noticed that. Especially odd as the other one I got (to open) is fine.

    Yeah the pricing was quite odd - £3.99 reduced from £6.99!! (Legends are usually £3-4 here).

    these ARE old. it's basically like a universe release, only it was done with Classics packaging.

    My local Dollar General recently got some of these in (used to only have some Scouts). I'm planning on getting a couple for some kitbashes.

    I've seen those at discount stores, and at Kmart several months ago.

    I've seen these in Kmart stores when Universe 2 started, so that 2007 copyright sounds accurate to me. Definitely not new, but not the sort of thing everyone's run into before.

    I was curious as while the date is 2 years old, I've not seen these before or heard of them on here.

    Also, awesome sig btw. ;)
